For Nonfiction Monday  --  "Aircraft carriers: runways at sea" by Lynn Peppas.


This is one of those books that rarely sits on the book shelf. Students who are looking for books dealing with military topics are quick to pick up this title.


Brief chapters cover the subject of aircraft carriers from the general to the specific. The first seven chapters provide an overview of aircraft carriers, and go on to discuss Parts of an Aircraft Carrier, Working on an Aircraft Carrier, Take off, Landing, Aircraft and Weapons. The next six chapters delve into the details of various types of carriers from Light Aircraft Carriers to Amphibious Assault Carriers. The book concludes with an exploration of Future Aircraft Carriers, a Glossary and an Index. Large scale photographs with close-up inserts provide readers with an in-depth look at each topic under discussion.
